National Wildlife Refuges to Offer Expanded Fishing Access

posted in: regional | 0

In March, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) officals announced that the agency will expand hunting and fishing opportunities throughout the National Wildlife Refuge System, opening up new hunting programs on six refuges and expanding existing hunting and fishing programs on another 20 refuges.

The rule also modifies existing refuge-specific regulations for more than 75 additional refuges and wetland management districts.


Port Louisa National Wildlife Refuge will offer additional sport fishing, migratory bird hunting, upland game hunting, and big game hunting.


Sport fishing and bird hunting will be expanded at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is already open to upland game hunting and big game hunting.
